Rapper 50 Cent disappointed after Superman comes out as bisexual
Jon Kent, the son of original Superman Clark Kent and journalist Lois Lane, turns out to be bisexual in DC Comics’ latest iteration of the superhero’s adventures.
The young man kisses reporter Jay Nakamura in issue five of the comic book “Superman: Son of Kal-El,” which will be released on Nov. 9.
“It’s not a gimmick,” the writer, Tom Taylor, said in an interview from Melbourne, Australia, wearing a T-shirt with a rainbow-striped Superman logo.
“When I was offered this job, I thought, ‘Well, if we’re going to have a new Superman for the DC Universe, it feels like a missed opportunity to have another straight white savior,” he said.
